    are older reissues of g1 figures ( i.e. tf collection #00 prime & #1 jazz or the commerative ones) worth - more, equal, or less in value than the orginal g1 figure.

    depends

    MISB TFC 00 Prime is worth more then a loose complete G1 vintage Prime

    a MISb Primes is WAYYYYYYY more expensiv then a MISB TFC.

    everything is relativ.

    Very true. MISB G1 primes depend on which version. MISB Prerubs can be really expensive. Like over $500. Specially if it is AFA graded.

    MISB TFC prime, meh doesnt do it for me so i wouldnt pay ridiculous money.

    Now a loose but complete Diaclone Powered Convoy is gonna be worth more than a MISB TFC prime

    Hasbro reissue not worth much more then retail and most even cheaper.

    TFC has a few under what they cost when relesed but many fo them cost more today then when relesed especially if we go after MISB ones. ( Insectacons, Blitzwing to name a few)

    Then you have the Reissue Seekers, Skywarp and Thundercracker is down in value since the encore, Dirge was never expensiv since the US reissue is baisicly the same since he dont have fireing launchers. Thrust and Ramjet ARE expensiv, Sometimes they can even go over a MIB vintage piece complete with inenr bubbles and insert tray.

    I wish someone would tell this to those e-Bay fools selling and buying them at inflated prices. Then maybe I could get them.

    TC Blaster is another that, MISB, goes for more than loose G1 Blasters (not counting a G1 MISB Blaster, of course).

    Some of the limited run reissues (Ramjet, Thrust, Predaking, Piranacon, Galvatron) can go for well more than loose versions of their original G1 counterparts as well.

    The reissue Insecticons go for stupid money - you can pick up three minty-mint vintage versions for about 3rd of the price!

    I never was lucky enough to own the TFC Prime, but I have the ones mentioned so far in this thread. Maybe I should sell them and make a nice profit? lol

    Nah, I love them too much. :D

    Simple rule with collecting toys... don't do it hoping to make a profit... you'll feel better about EVERYTHING. :D
